How can these kids have any critical thinking ability at all? They are entertained by television and a bevy of computerized toys from the youngest age. They don't even have to play with their toys, the toys play for them and they passively watch now. When was the last time you saw a kid playing with sticks and pretending they are guns, brooms or whatever. My kids used to take kitchen chairs, lay them on the side and pretend they were cars, now they have little mini motorized cars they can drive around. Imagination is the breeding ground for an inquisitive mind and parents now are more concerned with their kids toys entertaining them rather than fostering inventive play.
As kids spend more and more time in front of computers and younger and younger ages, and sitting in front of youtube videos and the garbage they pass off as television the dumming down has only begun.
